Although it is now a campus showpiece, many of the structure’s most innovative design considerations are not readily seen by the casual observer. For example: The field needs to drain quickly in a rainstorm, but the garage must remain dry. SMMA plumbing engineers assisted in the coordination of the storm drainage system, ensuring that, regardless of the weather conditions, the garage is unaffected, and no pooling occurs on field-level.
The incorporation of on-field drinking fountains/bottle-fillers and “hidden” sanitary plumbing vent termination points were among the additional design contributions made by our plumbing engineers.
The facility includes visiting team lockers, concessioning, and field equipment storage for the adjacent competition fields, and with the drop-off area, it has become a primary campus entrance for visitors and staff alike.
